The South East Area Coalition

The South East Area Coalition, Inc. is a Neighborhood Preservation Company that facilitates community and economic development in south east Rochester. We help the citizens who live and work in southeast Rochester to accomplish goals and initiatives for their neighborhoods and businesses. We support existing neighborhood and merchant associations, as well as help to organize citizens into groups to generate sought-after results. 

SEAC supports our south east area business by shopping local as much as possible, keeping the money here in the community.
